Description

Four photographs placed within a transparent sleeve of Pastor Arthur E. Frost and his family.

In the top left photograph, Pastor Frost stands alongside three other people outdoors just to the left of what appears to be a single-story structure (the rightmost part of this photograph is hidden from view by the adjacent image that has been placed over it).
The woman to the right of Pastor Frost has been identified as his wife, Emma E. Frost. She wears a long dress that is slightly cinched at the waist with a wide belt. A kind of wide fan-like bow hangs from the point where her collar meets. Standing in front of the Pastor with his arms held together is his youngest son, identified as Herluf A. Frost. Finally, the Pastor's daughter, Evelyn Frost, is standing in front of her mother wearing a knee-length dress and single-strap shoes.

In the top right photograph, they are outdoors in front of a two-story home. This structure has horizontal siding, a gable roof, double-hung windows, and a patio covered with an overhang. They are still dressed in the attire from the previous picture. In the distance, there appears to be a church, judging by the pyramidal tower that can be seen over the front entrance, and the small niche just below the roof structure that holds a bell.

In the bottom left photograph, the family is inside a room with a floral-print carpet and what could be a studio backdrop in the back. The Pastor and Emma, seated, both appear to be still dressed in the attire from the previous two pictures. The children, however, have been changed. Herluf wears a sailor-type costume and Evelyn wears a geometric-print dress with a large bow pinned to the right part of her head. On the back of this photograph, there is hand-written text that gives the years that Arthur served as pastor - from 1934 to 1941.

The last photograph in the bottom right corner is a copy of the previous one, but it has been scaled up to a bigger size and cropped in closer to the family.
